Art Gallery of Fells Point presents its "Artist of the Month." Cyndi's exhibtion on the back wall of the gallery features her exploration of non-representative art with big, bold, bright canvases. An artist's reception will be held on Friday, May 3 from 5-9pm.
The farmers market has flourished in the last two years. It's back this year with a greater variety of fresh, natural, and organic products. The array of vendors now stretches from Broadway Square to Broadway Pier. Occurs every Saturday until the end of November.
For tourists, it's a reliable place to dine in Fells Point and the only place to get one of those eat bertha's mussels bumper stickers. For locals, it's a cozy, homey restaurant and bar, and the only place to get Bertha's mussels, which are still worth a trip.
Light fare combined with more than 120 selections of single-malt scotches and wine.
Remember bread-you know, the staff of life? Bonaparte's is a panophobes nightmare. The breads are perfection. The bakery's gay Fells Point outpost sells a prix fixe breakfast and lunch, featuring traditional French sandwiches and rich, eggy quiches. In mild weather, an esplanade provides some of the town's most serene al fresco dining. Bring that novel you've been working on.
The Brass Monkey features local, alternative live shows where tickets are pre-sold by the bands themselves. Live music every Thursday through Saturday night for bands and TUESDAY is Acoustic Open Mic Nite hosted by Jack Burns.
Small Mexican eatery in the heart of Fells Point.
This Fells Point legend features live music nightly including American roots music, blues, and jazz.
No matter how many years we have been going to Henninger's, we always feel like we're being let in on a local dining secret when we walk in. Maybe it's because the scruffy front bar belies the elegant food therein, or the fact that the place is in a quiet back corner of Upper Fells Point. Henninger's food is ambitious and always seems to have a trick up its sleeve--like the menu-staple fried oysters, which arrive here on a bed of wilted lettuce in a delicious Pernod cream sauce. We're willing to ride along on fun fare like Henninger's Fighting Fish, a tempura-fried catch of the day with Hong Kong-style vegetables and sticky rice, but the menu also satisfies the more traditional diner with crab cakes and filet mignon (though that comes wrapped in applewood bacon with citrus-sweet potato mash.)
Kali's Mezze still packs the house for authentic Mediterranean small plates. Looking for fatoush, horta, or pastirma? You'll find it here along with savory cheese pies, moussaka, and a tarama that will make you wish you could lick your plate.
"Wonderful, friendly local coffee shop catering to local and tourist cliental. This shop also offers a wide selection of home made pastries and speciality sandwiches. Ice coffee is served with coffee ice cubes for a unique coffee experience."
Parkers' live music consists of all sorts of live bands playing Wednesday through Saturday evenings.
Somewhere in the back of this worn-looking Fells Point bar, Karin Tiffany turns out some of the most consistently worthwhile food in the city. There are only maybe half a dozen tables and a handful of entrées and appetizers, all spelled out on a chalkboard hanging next to the men's room, but Tiffany touches all the bases: artful openers, show-stopping soups, and always, always a worth-the-trip vegetarian entrée and a prime steak treated with all the respect it deserves. Plus the most garlicky garlic bread in the Mid-Atlantic. An enduring local favorite, and with good reason.
"Premium Sandwiches ...mmmmm Toasty!"
The two best reasons to go are the free parking lot (a Fells Point rarity) and the handsome, soaring brick-and-wood space, which handily accommodates large crowds. The menu has undergone what looks like a complete overhaul since City Paper last visited. There are now, along with the sandwiches and salads, more bona fide entrées, and the fine steak salad and yummy thin-crust pizza are still in place, but what's become of those fabulous panini? On the other hand, some of the clunkers have vanished, too. Popular Sunday brunch features jumbo lump crab hash and fried steak and eggs.
What fgoes better with a harbor view than all manner of raw, steamed, and prepared-otherwise seafood, which highlights what this gregarious spot dishes out.
The Kali's Court folkd succeed at tapas as well, with a sampling of moderately authentic Spanish small plates offered up in a handsome space.
A quality, contemporary, and reasonably-priced seafood restaurant that's just a seafood restaurant--not a fish market or crab house.
"A seed-to-table restaurant that sources ingredients as locally and seasonally as possible, Waterfront Kitchen offers sweeping views of the Baltimore harbor from the western-most tip of Thames Street in Historic Fells Point."
